Mr Monkey scampered aboard the Bristol Lodekka bus, but it was a bit dark onboard with no lights on so he quickly jumped off again, even though the bus was able to go under bridges as low as 13ft 6ins. Mr Monkey thought that if they really wanted to go under low bridges, they should have considered a single decker bus, and went to look at the Bristol 403 car. This was built in 1954, one of only 275 or so built, and Mr Monkey was impressed by the streamlining and the lack of door handles.
